The Disabled List - What do we do?

Face it, Jay Witasick has no spot left on this team. We know that, and it seems even Macha has realized it as well.

When Duchscherer and Kennedy get back, someone has got to go.

This is our current bullpen

RHP Huston Street
RHP Kiko Calero
LHP Brad Halsey
RHP Chad Gaudin
RHP Jay Witasick
LHP Ron Flores
RIP Steve Karsay

That is, of course, if we want to continue with 7 Relief pitchers.

When Duchscherer and Kennedy come back, someone's gotta go.

RHP Huston Street
RHP Kiko Calero
LHP Joe Kennedy
RHP Justin Duchscherer
LHP Brad Halsey
RHP Chad Gaudin
RHP Jay Witasick

But here is the thing! Those two are not the only ones comming back!

We also have Rich Harden, Mark Ellis and Frank Thomas comming off the DL, and only 1 replacement player besides Scutaro that we can send down: Mike Rouse.

Thomas is comming off the DL when Interleague is over, meaning Rouse is going down. We accept that.

But there are TWO more players comming back after that. Who do Mark Ellis and Rich Harden take the place of?

Rich Harden will go to the Rotation, pushing Saarloos to the Pen. That means someone has got to go from the pen. That means it comes down to Gaudin or Witasick. With Ellis back, yet another will be forced down to the minors or to another team.

So this team, in one month, will likely be in a bind unless someone wants to take another trip to the DL (more then likely).

What do we do? Who do we trade? Any ideas?
